Safety Information
Important: Read this information before using your
wireless handheld phone.
Exposure to Radio Frequency Signals
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low
power radio transmitter and receiver. When it is ON,
it receives and also sends out radio frequency (RF)
signals.
In August 1996, The Federal Communications
Commissions (FCC) adopted RF exposure
guidelines with safety levels for handheld wireless
phones. Those guidelines are consistent with safety
standards previously set by both U.S. and
international standards bodies:
•
American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
IEEE. C95. 1-1992
•
National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurement (NCRP) Report 86
•
International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) 1996
Those standards were based on comprehensive
and periodic evaluations of the relevant scientific
literature. For example, over 120 scientists,
engineers, and physicians from universities,
government health agencies, and industry
reviewed the available body of research to develop
the ANSI Standard (C95.1).
The design of your phone complies with the FCC
guidelines (and those standards).
Antenna Care
Use only the supplied or an approved replacement
antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or
attachments could damage the phone and may
violate FCC regulations.
v
TDMA.book Page vi Tuesday, August 10, 1999 10:43 AM
Phone Operation
Normal Operation
Hold the phone as you would any other telephone,
with the antenna pointed up and over your
shoulder.
Tip on Efficient Operation
To operate your phone most efficiently, do not touch
the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is in
use. Contact with the antenna affects call quality
and may cause the phone to operate at a higher
power level than otherwise needed.
Batteries
Caution: All batteries can cause property damage,
injury, or burns if a conductive material, such as
jewelry, keys or beaded chains, touches exposed
terminals. The material may complete an electrical
circuit and become quite hot. To protect against
such unwanted current drain, exercise care in
handling any charged battery, particularly when
placing it inside your pocket, purse, or other
container with metal objects. When the battery is
detached from the phone, your batteries are
packed with a protective battery cover; please use
this cover for storing your batteries when not in use.
Driving
Check the laws and regulations on the use of
wireless telephones in the areas where you drive.
Always obey them. Observe the following
guidelines when using your phone while driving.
vi
•
Give full attention to driving--driving safely is
your first responsibility.
•
Use hands-free phone operation, if available.
•
Pull off the road and park before making or
answering a call if driving conditions so
require.
TDMA.book Page vii Tuesday, August 10, 1999 10:43 AM
Electronic Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from
RF signals. However, certain equipment may not be
shielded against the RF signals from your wireless
phone.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association
recommends that a minimum separation of six
inches (6") be maintained between a handheld
wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker. These
recommendations are consistent with the
independent research by and recommendations of
Wireless Technology Research.
Persons with pacemakers:
•
should ALWAYS keep the phone more than
six inches from their pacemaker when the
phone is turned ON
•
should not carry the phone in a breast pocket
•
should use the ear opposite the pacemaker
to minimize the potential for interference
•
should turn the phone OFF immediately if you
have any reason to suspect that interference
is taking place
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with
some hearing aids. In the event of such
interference, you may want to consult your hearing
aid manufacturer to discuss alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device,
consult the manufacturer of your device to
determine if it is adequately shielded from external
RF energy. Your physician may be able to assist
you in obtaining this information.
vii
TDMA.book Page viii Tuesday, August 10, 1999 10:43 AM
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when
any regulations posted in these areas instruct you
to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities may be
using equipment that could be sensitive to external
RF energy.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or
inadequately shielded electronic systems in motor
vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or its
representative regarding your vehicle. You should
also consult the manufacturer of any equipment
that has been added to your vehicle.
Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in any facility where posted
notices so require.
Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in
the air. Switch OFF your phone before boarding an
aircraft.
Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn
your phone OFF when in a “blasting area” or in
areas posted: “Turn off two-way radio.” Obey all
signs and instructions.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn your phone OFF and do not remove your
battery when you are in any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere. Obey all signs and
instructions.
Sparks from your battery in such areas could cause
an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even
death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are
often but not always clearly marked. They include,
but are not limited to: fueling areas such as
viii
TDMA.book Page ix Tuesday, August 10, 1999 10:43 AM
gasoline stations; below deck on boats; fuel or
chemical transfer or storage facilities; areas where
fuel odors are present (for example, if a gas/
propane leak occurs in a car or home); areas where
the air contains chemicals or particles, such as
grain, dust, or metal powders; and any other area
where you normally would be advised to turn off
your vehicle engine.
For Vehicles Equipped with an Air Bag
An air bag inflates with great force. Do NOT place
objects, including both installed or portable
wireless equipment, in the area over the air bag or
in the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle
wireless equipment is improperly installed and the
air bag inflates, serious injury could result.

Using the Battery
Batteries
About Your Batteries
Your TDMA digital StarTAC™ phone can use either
Lithium Ion (LiIon) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
batteries. Batteries are available in these sizes:
Slim, Standard, and Extra Capacity.
Your phone can use two batteries at the same time.
You can use:
•
any single main or auxiliary battery
or
•
a main and auxiliary battery combination
to fit your needs. You can even extend your talktime by attaching an auxiliary battery at any time,
without interrupting your call.
Battery Talk-Time and Standby-Time
Talk-time refers to the time you can talk on your
phone before the battery is fully discharged.
Standby-time is the time that your phone is on but
not used for talking.
Notes:
•
Talking on the phone uses more power than
leaving it idle. The more power you use for
talking, the less you’ll have for standby-time,
and vice-versa.
•
All times are approximate and depend on the
battery used, network configuration, signal
strength, and the features selected.
•
Talk and standby times are lower in analog
mode.
•
Your phone operates more efficiently in
Digital mode. If the
icon is displayed in
the lower left corner, your phone’s

clip it on—for the ultimate in
high-tech fashion.
Notes:
•
The holster is designed for your convenience
and is not meant to secure your phone under
all circumstances.
•
For body-worn use, keep the antenna at least
one inch from your body when transmitting.
Headset
Reference
The convenient headset provides
both an earphone and microphone in
one small piece for simple hands-free
and private telephone conversations.
The headset plugs directly into the
jack on the top of your phone, so that
you can wear your phone and move freely. Place
the foam cover on the earpiece for a more
comfortable fit.

Hands-Free Vehicle Kit
The optional Hands-Free Kit gives you the
convenience of hands-free, speaker phone
operation while in your car. Full duplex operation
lets you simultaneously talk and listen, so both
parties can interrupt each other for a normal
sounding conversation.
The Hands-Free Kit automatically powers your
phone and charges its battery (even when your
car’s engine is turned off). The Hands-Free Kit also
includes a required external antenna that can
improve your signal reception and boost
performance.
Note: The use of wireless telephones and their
accessories (devices) may be prohibited or
restricted in certain areas. Always obey the laws
and regulations on the use of these devices.
Accessory Limited Warranty
Information
We recommend that you use Motorola original
batteries and accessories. Under its limited cellular
telephone warranty, Motorola specifically disclaims
any responsibility for damage caused by the use of
portable cellular telephone accessories not
manufactured by Motorola.

Troubleshooting
Answer
I pressed the
power button, but
nothing happened.
What’s wrong with
my phone?
Make sure that you press and hold the power button
until the display appears and you hear an audible alert. If
nothing still happens, then check that you have installed
a battery and that the battery is charged. For more
information about batteries and charging see the
sections on batteries starting with “Installing and
Removing Batteries” on page 17.
My battery didn’t
last as long as I
expected. What
can I do to extend
battery life?
Your battery’s “talk-time” and “standby-time” are
relative measurements of the battery’s capacity. The
more you talk on the phone, the less standby-time you
have, and vice versa.
To get the most from your battery, allow it to charge
fully. To charge the battery to 100% of its capacity, leave
it in the charger for an extra hour after the charger’s light
turns green.
You can also turn on the Power Save Mode feature to
extend battery life. However, the LED Power/Status
Indicator does not light when this feature is activated.
Certain features demand power from your battery and
reduce battery life. If you have selected the Automatic
Display of Individual Call Timer feature, the display uses
battery power to remain active during each call. Turn this
feature off to conserve battery energy. (See “Displaying
the Individual Timer Automatically” on page 64 for more
information on this feature.)
Make sure that you are using batteries that are
compatible with your phone.
Exposing your battery to extreme temperatures—below
-10°C (14°F) or above 45°C (113°F)—can shorten battery
life. Batteries are especially sensitive to high
temperature extremes. As a good rule, always take your
phone with you when you leave your car.
The display says,
“Locked.” How do I
unlock my phone?
Enter the last three digits of your cellular number. If that
doesn’t work, use the factory preset lock code: 123. If
all else fails, call your service provider (the company that
sends you your monthly cellular bill) for assistance. (See
“Locking/Unlocking Your Phone” on page 76 for more
information on Security Features.)

Question
TDMA.book Page 108 Tuesday, August 10, 1999 10:43 AM
Question
Answer
I tried to place a
call and received a
fast busy signal.
This sound means that the cellular system did not
process your call. For example, the cellular system may
be overloaded with call attempts. To redial the number,
press
before ending your call attempt, or press
and try the call again later. (See “Redialing a
Number” on page 29 for more information on redialing.)
I tried to place a
call and received
an alternating
high/low tone.
This sound means your call did not reach the cellular
system. You may have dialed the number too soon after
turning the phone on. Wait until the “NS” light stops
blinking before placing a call.
An alternating tone may also indicate that your phone’s
signal is blocked. Make sure you’re clear of any
obstructions such as bridges, parking garages, or tall
buildings.
I tried to listen to
my Voice Mail (or
use a paging
service, a calling
card, etc.) but
nothing happened.
You have probably turned off the Scratchpad tones.
Place your call, enter the access numbers when
. To
prompted by the recording, then press
avoid this problem in the future, follow the directions
“Turning Scratchpad Tones On and Off” on page 72 to
turn the Scratchpad tones on.
My phone was
stolen. What
should I report and
to whom?
Report a stolen phone to the police and to your service
provider (the company that sends you your monthly
cellular service bills).
I tried to place a
calling card call
using the internal
Phone Book, but it
didn’t work.
You may have turned off your Scratchpad tones. Follow
the directions in “Turning Scratchpad Tones On and Off”
on page 72 to turn the Scratchpad tones on.
Check that you stored your calling card information in
the correct order, and make sure the groups of numbers
are separated by pauses. The easiest way to correct the
sequence may be to start from scratch. Follow the
instructions on “Storing Calling Card Information” on
page 53, enter your calling card information again, and
store it in the same memory location as your previous
attempt.
Also keep in mind that when using your calling card, you
must enter the number you are calling with the area
code, but without the initial “1.” Check with your long
distance carrier for details on using your calling card.
